Adventure Media Membership FAQs

Who qualifies for Adventure Media Membership?

Adventure Media Membership is offered after successful participation in the role of an official media delegate at a recent Adventure Travel World Summit, AdventureELEVATE, AdventureNEXT or AdventureWeek event. (See the “Official Media at ATTA Events FAQs” HERE to learn more about the official media delegate program at events.)

Publishers, hobby bloggers, public relations and marketing agency representatives, or media service providers (video production, content development, advertising, travel apps) are not eligible for the official media delegate role, but are encouraged to attend ATTA events and consider the benefits of joining at the Community, Professional, or Industry Partner member levels. 

Why do you offer this membership level?

The Adventure Travel Trade Association (ATTA) values the expertise, perspective, and storytelling skills that professional travel journalists, editors, bloggers, influencers, photojournalists, and broadcast journalists bring to our global community through our programs. Adventure Media Membership provides qualified and vetted individual members of the media the opportunity to connect to an expansive network of adventure and sustainable travel community professionals worldwide.

Is there another way to join?

We encourage media and travel industry professionals interested in being part of the global ATTA community to join for free through the Community Membership. The community membership level gives you access to articles, interviews, research analysis, and practical business guides in AdventureTravelNews; free educational webinars, job listings, and invitations to free AdventureConnect networking gatherings around the globe.

What are the benefits of being an Adventure Media Member?

Adventure Media Membership includes all the Professional and Business level membership benefits plus three unique additional benefits that are outlined on the main adventure media membership page. (J-Alerts, the Quarterly Media Newsletter, and a Digital Badge.)

Does membership expire?

After two years, active members will be asked to renew their membership at no charge and submit updated profile information for re-qualification. The membership will expire if the member does not opt-in to renew (or is no longer qualified). If a member is selected and successfully participates at an ATTA event as an official media delegate within the two-year cycle, they will be invited to opt-in to membership again, essentially restarting the renewal date at that time.

How are media members considered for events?

Active media members receive direct email notification of ATTA event media application opportunities via the quarterly media newsletter. Active media membership does not guarantee an application will be selected for an event. Membership is not required to apply for an official media spot at an event; anyone can apply. 

How can I tell if my membership is active?

If your membership is current and your HUB profile is activated, you would be listed HERE.
